"The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC=""> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC=""> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes.

    My DH who had lived in Scotland for several years, RAVED about these!! I made them exactly as written. It surprised me how quick and easy they were to do; and the lemon cream really highlights the flavor of these spicy scones. I think we found a new favorite. Thank you Bliss!

    These were delicious scones! They had just the right amount of spice and weren't too sweet. I didn't add the raisin/currants because I didn't have them. Also, I patted the dough into a circle and cut into 8 wedges. We like a little sweeter spread, so I added a little bit of powdered sugar to the lemon cream to cut some of the tartness. My family loved these scones and gave them 2 big thumbs up. Thank you Bliss for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper! I'm glad that I chose to make this for Fall '06 PAC
